“Whether or not you believe in Chavez is moot, he was elected by the people via a ballot box. There is no question that is a very controversial leader but he was also a legitimate leader.”

“Ryan should not victimize the poor, he should cut entitlements for government employees and push for pension reform. Just look at social security for example, it's a $47 billion dollar deficit for 2012.”

“Private pension reform? Because lets face it the 401k system is a bust.”

“Look at how SS had a massive stockpile of money siphoned off by the Congress to pay for other things that has never been paid back. SS would be in the black until 2100 with no changes at all if Congress had not stolen from the American workers so that the wealthy could pay less.”

“Social Security is not an "entitlement" program, in the pejorative sense often used by the TP. But, people who have paid into it all their lives are entitled to being repaid the money they invested in it, with all of the compounded earnings. It's not the government's money and never was.”

“Wallstreet is based on momentum. For the Dow to make a new high just after the last quarter showed a contraction in the economy makes absolutely no sense.

I would sell and sit on cash.”

“The Dow is about corporate profits, not the economy.”

“This headline is typical of politics in America today. There is no middle road...it's all or nothing. They promote cuts with "Fear and Hysteria" instead of making them out of fiscal responsibility.

Give me your thoughts,

“Doubt it!  Too many loop holes.  Government needs to stop entitlements in the public sector and loop holes in the private. ”

“All well and good since *you* don't need assistance, a hand up, need help with a child with severer disabilities or a whole long list of problems for people in serious need. Does it feel good to slam the door behind you?”

“I find these employment reports misleading and often times they are a lagging indicator. The US government has posted it's first contraction to growth since 2009. Every company out there has stated a contraction in income - both private and public sectors.”
